    I didn't read the article you linked, but I did see in a health magazine that unless you're an elite level athlete who's really pushing your body, there's no need to supplement with something like that. Gatorade and water work just fine for the strong majority of people. Just relaying what I heard though.

    I think Pedialyte is much lower in carbs than Gatorade.

    Mostly because milk has protein and Gatorade doesn't. Not the best option if you are lactose intolerant, though. In that case I'd suggest Accelerade or a protein shake (Muscle Milk, Surge, etc). Can't beat milk for the price, though, so I'm not knocking it.

    That chocolate milk article is very interesting! If you click the link at the bottom that reads "Check out more information on chocolate milk at CBS News" it takes you to a little bit longer article. At the end of THAT article, it gives the citation for the article that was published in a peer-reviewed journal. I'm going to try and track that down right now.

    This is extremely interesting though! It's important to note a couple things though before everybody swaps out their Gatorade for Yoo-Hoo...1) the sample size of the study was only reported to be 9 people, 3 in each condition. 2) They should have used better placebo's. But I do think this is a great start to springboard other studies. Oh yeah, and it appears they used milk AFTER one workout, over a long break before the next work out. Not during a workout, or not during a short intermission (i.e. between tournament matches). I'd be afraid that doing something like this in short intermission like at a tournament match could cause a build up of lactic acid or produce cramping. Or at least weigh you down.

    Can any of the health nuts chime in to my thoughts and offer your own?

    It's nothing new or revolutionary. We've known for a while that a "sports drink" with added protein will replenish muscle glycogen and fuel recovery better than without. Ton of research, and I'm sure you can find some posts about it tucked in the FAQ somewhere.

    Damn, my reply didn't go through! Grrrr

    I found this to be extremely interesting, and I'm going to track down the actual peer-reviewed article right now. There are a couple things to point out though before we go swapping Gatorade for Yoo-Hoo.

    1) The study was based on a sample of 9 individuals which is EXTREMELY small, with only 3 people in each condition. However, it's worth noting that with a sample of 9 individuals, the effect would have to be VERY large in order to find significance. But with a sample of 9, I'd lean more towards bad randomization and remain skeptical.

    2) This was being done during a LONG intermission between bouts of exercise, NOT during the workout or during a short intermission (i.e. between tournament matches or something).

    If done between tournament matches, I'd worry about possible lactic acid build up, or at least a "weighted down" feeling.

    Maybe some of the health gurus can chime in to my thoughts, and offer some of their own? Well I've got the 15 page article, so I'm going to read it and will provide a synopsis afterwards.

    If the TS'er hadn't said something about it in the next post I would have been cursing your name. You'd think I'd know that URL by heart now...

    So there's a fair amount of scientific evidence that challenge what supplements are necessary and under what conditions. Unfortunately 1) they're very hard to understand if you're not in the field 2) they are done on endurance exercises not exercise similar to what we do and 3) it's hard to compare between the studies due to so many variables.

    But there's definitely enough to challenge the necessity of anything besides a simple Gatorade is seems like. This whole ENDUROX thing may not be all it's hyped up to be. Chocolate milk may be the way to go if anything at all. =)

    Stuff tastes like shit. My doctor even says not to use it. When we had our baby, he told us Gatorade was better leaps and bounds than pedialyte.
